Tips For Consuming Marijuana Edibles For The First Time

Category: Culture | Posted on Fri, September, 19th 2014 by THCFinder
tips-for-consuming-mj-ediblesMarijuana edibles are becoming more and more popular everyday. This is especially true in Colorado, where recreational marijuana edibles are legal. Marijuana edibles are legal in Washington State as well, but due to slow licensing, availability is much lower there. Marijuana edibles were brought into the media spotlight when New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd visited Colorado, didn’t know her limit, and ate edibles that were clearly too strong for her. Marijuana opponents tried to use it as an opportunity to throw the entire marijuana edible industry under the bus, but in fact, it was just a single case of a rookie not knowing what she was doing.
 
Maureen Dowd’s experience has led to the Marijuana Policy Project launching a new website that provides information about eating marijuana edibles. If you are a veteran marijuana consumer, the information isn’t that relevant because chances are you know your limit, and your limit is high enough that you shouldn’t have any issues. Personally, I have never met a marijuana edible that I couldn’t handle. I will not only gladly try every edible that is on the market, but I’ll eat way more than people think I can, and still be able to function quite well and can still beat most sober prohibitionists at any activity that requires brain power. But for those of you that are new to the marijuana world, or don’t have much experience with edibles, you should check out Marijuana Policy Project’s new website.
 
The main takeaways from their website, is to know the law, know your limit, and know your responsibilities. The ‘know the law’ part is very straightforward. As I stated previously in this article, recreational marijuana edibles are only legal in Colorado and Washington, and they are only widely available (and affordable I’d add) in Colorado right now. With Oregon, Alaska, and Washington D.C. voting on marijuana legalization this November, legal recreational edibles could be coming to those areas too.
 
As far as the ‘know your limit’ part, the main thing to realize is that the effects from marijuana are much stronger when eaten as opposed to smoking or vaporizing it. When someone eats marijuana in the form of a brownie, cookie, candy, etc, it goes through the bloodstream. It takes longer to kick in compared to smoking or vaporizing because smoking or vaporizing goes into the nervous system, which makes the effects kick in much faster. When marijuana is eaten and goes into the bloodstream, it takes about 45 minutes to an hour to kick in, but once it does, the effects can last many hours longer than it does when inhaled. Start slow, and let time go by, and eat more as needed. After you have eaten edibles a few times, you will then have a good idea of how much you can handle.
 
Lastly, the ‘know your responsibilities’ part gives a great overview of how to be a responsible marijuana consumer. The overwhelming majority of marijuana consumers are very responsible, so this part of the website seems like stuff that is common knowledge. But if you are dumb, and there are certainly dumb people out there, marijuana consumer or otherwise, read that section very carefully. Good luck on your marijuana edible experiences, and remember, if you have a bad experience, don’t go around throwing the marijuana industry under the bus. Take personal responsibility and recognize that maybe you can’t handle edibles, and stick to a different form of marijuana consumption that you can handle.

Washington, D.C., Voters Strongly Support Marijuana Legalization

Category: Legalization | Posted on Fri, September, 19th 2014 by THCFinder
wa-dc-mmj-legalizationWashington, D.C., voters appear to be ready to legalize marijuana, according to a new poll that puts support at 65 percent.
 
The NBC4/Washington Post/Marist poll's finding that district voters support legalization by amost a 2-1 margin “is the highest support ever for a marijuana legalization ballot initiative,” Adam Eidinger, chair of D.C. Cannabis Campaign, the group backing the legalization measure, said in a statement. “It vindicates the work of this campaign so far, but we still have more work to do turning out the vote come Election Day.”
 
On Nov. 4, D.C. voters will decide Initiative 71, which would legalize adult marijuana use, possession of up to two ounces, and home cultivation of up to six marijuana plants for personal use. The sale of marijuana would remain illegal. The D.C. Council is considering a separate bill that would allow the regulation and taxation of marijuana.
 
The new poll suggests D.C. will join Washington state and Colorado in legalizing recreational marijuana. Just days before Washington state voters legalized recreational marijuana in 2012, Public Policy Polling found 53 percent support for the measure. The day before Colorado voters approved marijuana for recreational use by adults, PPP found 52 percent support.
 
“Voters are relating to the message that legalization will end D.C.’s rampant discrimination when it comes marijuana enforcement," said Dr. Malik Burnett, D.C. Policy Manager for the Drug Policy Alliance, in a statement.
 
According to the Washington Lawyers' Committee, arrest statistics from 2009 to 2011 revealed that nine out of 10 people arrested for drugs in Washington were black, though blacks make up just slightly more than half of the city's population. Yet government surveys show that blacks are no more likely than whites to use the drug.
 
A marijuana activist criticized The Washington Post for editorializing against legalization.
 
"At the very moment this Washington Post poll was in the field, the paper's own editorial board was circulating a 'Reefer Madness'-style, error-laden screed urging D.C. voters to reject legalization," Marijuana Majority's Tom Angell told The Huffington Post. A Sunday Post editorial urged D.C. voters to "reject the rush to marijuana."
 
"It looks like that didn't work," Angell said of the editorial. "No matter how hard prohibitionists try to spread scare stories about legalization, poll after poll confirms that this is a mainstream issue supported by a growing majority of the public."

Grapefruit - Sativa

Grapefruit is a high-yielding sativa with fast flowering times. A sweet taste and a nice tropical high. The guys from DNA Genetics are Southern California natives who migrated to realize their calling as breeders in the relative weed freedom of Amsterdam. But they didn't leave all that great Cali genetics behind. California Grapefruit combines three of the Golden State's favorite indicas: Northern Lights, Skunk #1 and Afghani.

Medical Marijuana Dispensary Becomes Canada's First to Accept Bitcoin

Category: Culture | Posted on Thu, September, 18th 2014 by THCFinder

Mega Chill has become the first medical marijuana dispensary in Canada to accept bitcoin.
 
Since the formal announcement this September, Mega Chill has seen an overwhelmingly positive response from the community, both from patients familiar with bitcoin and customers who had never heard of the digital currency.
 
The relationship between bitcoin and the marijuana industry is long-standing due to bitcoin’s ability to offer an alternative to the traditional banking system and its still-prevalent use in online dark markets.
 
In the case of Mega Chill, however, the decision had less to do with sidestepping potential money problems and more to do with the growing popularity of bitcoin as a payment method. CoinDesk spoke with co-owner Matt Jung, who cited the public’s curiosity and enthusiasm for digital currency as the reason his business decided to accept bitcoin.
 
Jung said customers have begun using bitcoin regularly since Mega Chill started accepting it, telling CoinDesk:
 
“It’s been really good for our patients. One girl who comes in gets paid in bitcoin, so it’s perfect for her.”
 
Notably, the company manages its own bitcoin wallet rather than using a payments processor.
 
Ideal bitcoin merchant
 
For some, Mega Chill represents the ideal merchant for bitcoin – a business that is a relative newcomer to the technology but still sees the benefits of accepting it.
 
Jung told CoinDesk that Mega Chill, like other small businesses, is responding to grassroots support for the technology. He added his belief that bitcoin is an easy-to-use payment method and that the public ledger makes record-keeping simple as well.
 
Jung explained:
 
“It’s an interesting new step to take – a new emerging technology. It’s always good to have another payment method, to have more options for everybody.”
 
He added that from a financial management standpoint, bitcoin has helped reduced some of the friction Mega Chill faces as a marijuana business, including the hurdles it experienced when dealing with either card issuers or banking institutions.
 
“It eliminates a lot of the complications of dealing with the banks and dealing with the credit card companies,” Jung said.
